Trump's airline went bankrupt.
Do you understand the difference between an airline and an airliner.

Can you tell us what happened to your airline.

Do you understand the concept of net worth (hint you combine your losses with your gains and come up with a number, positive or negative. For example the Clinton's attempt at being like Trump was a real estate gamble called Whitewater, which went belly up. They went on to make hundreds of millions of dollars giving speeches to Wall Street banks and corporations though, so they have a positive net worth despite their real estate bankruptcy).

Trump may well be "smart" in the same way that a sewer rat is smart. But that kind of smartness is normally classified as survivalist cunning; not high minded intelligence.
Do rats build skyscrapers.

Do you build skyscrapers.

What do you know about building skyscrapers. People that build skyscrapers are insanely rich, do you make more money doing something more challenging. Is that why you have disdain for building skyscrapers.

Trump is stupid because he doesn't realize the consequences of his political decisions. He says he wants to make America great again and in fact he is risking dragging the US into a destructive war, which it may not survive. In that he is becoming increasingly similar to Hitler...
America is experiencing one of the greatest economic booms in our history under his guidance. Are you saying this evidence of stupidity and an inability to comprehend consequences of policy decisions.

Trump is indisputably more war averse than any President we've had in memory.

You live in a strange imaginary world.

Jesus, no, you do not have to be smart to own things! This whole ridiculous thread is a giant example of post hoc ergo propter hoc.

And that is the same story with Trump, except after his real estate bankruptcy he did TV commercials.

Lol poor strawman. In order to own things you first have to make money. Trump made billions of dollars building skyscrapers.

Steve, do you know how to build skyscrapers?

It's weird none of you will answer this questions. It's like you are terrified of the implications.

True. Trump is one of the greatest turnaround stories in history. After going bankrupt in the early 90's, he parlayed his fame into television income which then allowed him to be able to build skyscrapers again.

How is your airline going Milo.

Scot Adams explains Trump(along with other things) :

It's amazing anyone needs Trump explained to them. He's been in the public eye since the 1980's.

I don't know, nor care, how to build skyscrapers. Does Trump know how to write an academic book? I have written three...
